Award Description: Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant: The purpose of the EECBG Program is to assist eligible entities in creating and implementing strategies to: ? reduce fossil fuel emissions in a manner that is environmentally sustainable and, to the maximum extent practicable, maximizes benefits for local and regional communities; ? reduce the total energy use of the eligible entities; and ? improve energy efficiency in the building sector, the transportation sector, and other appropriate sectors. Desired outcomes of the EECBG Program include: ? Increased energy efficiency, reduced energy consumption and reduced energy costs through efficiency improvements in the building, transportation and other appropriate sectors; ? New jobs and increased productivity to spur economic growth and community development; ? Accelerated deployment of market-ready distributed renewable energy technologies, including wind, solar, geothermal, hydropower, biomass and hydrogen technologies; ? Improved air quality and related environmental and health indicators associated with the reduction of fossil fuel emissions; ? Improved coordination of energy-related policies and programs across jurisdictional levels of governance and with other local and community level programs in order to maximize the impact of this program on long-term local priorities; ? Increased security, resilience, and reliability of energy generation and transmission infrastructure; ? Leveraging of the resources of federal, state and local governments, utilities and utility regulators, private sector and non-profit organizations to maximize the resulting energy, economic and environmental benefits; and ? Widespread use of innovative financial mechanisms that transform markets. Significant deliverables include: An Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy, Project Activity Sheets describing how the EECBG funding will be used Measures include: Jobs created and/or retained, energy saved, renewable energy capacity,GHG emissions reduced, funds leveraged
